Backbends can be exciting, yet at times very frustrating. They are transformative and give us space to open our heart and allow healing to occur. Handstands are equally as exciting and frustrating, the strength and control we gain can be helpful in stabilizing our backbends and the element of focus required is a good challenge for the mind.
In this workshop we will work through correct alignment in these postures, the importance of activation of the core with some specific techniques to assist this and how to connect through the hands and feet, allowing a lifting and lengthening to occur in order to keep the spine long and prevent compression and risk of injury.
